Department of Social Sciences & Health Policy

Scott D. Rhodes , PhD, MPH, CHES, Chair


The mission of the Department of Social Sciences and Health Policy is to improve the human condition through the application of social sciences and policy research to health and health care.  Recognizing that health and healthcare represent complex challenges, we are committed to collaborative, multidisciplinary and translational approaches to our research, education and community involvement.

Faculty and Staff within the Department of Social Sciences and Health Policy (SSHP) have expertise in health-related quality of life, prevention of substance abuse, medical effectiveness, health care outcomes research, psychosocial factors in health and disease, prevention of adolescent high-risk health behaviors, women’s health issues, patient adherence, community interventions, and cost-effectiveness analysis of medical treatments. Areas of research interest of the 16 faculty members and 56 staff include adolescent health, alcohol, tobacco and drug use, community health, community interventions, health services research, health policy, psychometrics, women’s health, cognitive health and aging, medical outcomes and quality of life issues. Members of the department have headed or participated in multicenter studies of college drinking, underage drinking, CVD, dementia, adherence, and hypertension.
